Preview: DC Universe Presents #5

Sadly this is the last solo book we will see of Deadman for, what will likely be, an extended period of time. Issue #5 raps up Jenkins’ run on Boston Brand, and next month the series heads off in a more Kirby-esque direction with Challengers of the Unknown. This has been an incredibly entertaining arc, but it’s not the end of the red dead ghoul. I don’t know what you’re waiting for! Check the preview below and bask in that metafictional glory!

RELEASE: Jan 18

It’s the mind-blowing, metaphysical conclusion of Deadman’s soul-searching quest to find meaning in his mission and salvation for the spirits of those he has possessed! Deadman thinks he finally has the upper hand on his boss, Rama, but he’ll soon learn that when it comes to dealing with a god, there’s no such thing. All that plus mobsters, terrorists and a bazooka!
